Understanding Hospital Negligence

Hospital negligence occurs when a hospital employee fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, resulting in patient injury or death. Doctors, nurses, technicians, and other staff can all make mistakes leading to medical malpractice. Some examples of hospital negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious conditions
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors and pharmacy mix-ups
  • Failure to prevent infections
  • Inadequate monitoring of patients
  • Discharging patients prematurely
  • Birth injuries due to oxygen deprivation

These errors may seem minor at first. But even small mistakes can have catastrophic and lifelong consequences for patients. Hospital negligence lawyers fight to obtain compensation for victims’ medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering when a hospital fails in its duty of care.

Injuries Resulting from Hospital Negligence

Injuries Resulting from Hospital Negligence

Hospital errors impact anyone from expectant mothers to elderly surgery patients. When hospitals fail to follow proper standards, the resulting injuries can devastate patients and families. Some of the most serious hospital negligence injuries our Monterey Park medical malpractice lawyers see include:

Birth & Delivery Injuries

Mistakes during labor and delivery harm both mothers and babies, leading to:

  • Oxygen deprivation causing cerebral palsy or brain damage
  • Failure to monitor fetal distress
  • Improper use of vacuum or forceps
  • Delayed emergency C-sections

Preventable birth injuries require lifelong medical care. We secure funds to cover future health and developmental costs when hospitals are negligent.

Surgical Errors

With many complex daily surgeries, risks of mistakes abound, such as:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Leaving foreign objects inside patients
  • Organ or nerve damage
  • Surgical equipment failure
  • Anesthesia errors

Even minor anesthesia mistakes can cause serious harm.

Failure to Diagnose Critical Conditions

Top allegations we see involve failure to diagnose conditions like:

  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Blood clots
  • Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Appendicitis
  • Newborn respiratory issues

Catching these early prevents catastrophic outcomes for patients.

Medication Errors & Pharmacy Negligence

Mistakes in prescription dispensing and dosage still occur, including:

  • Incorrect or over dosage
  • Administering wrong medications
  • Failing to track adverse drug interactions
  • Illegible prescriptions

Even simple medication errors can cause substantial injury if patient drug allergies, contraindications or dosing is overlooked.

Inadequate Patient Monitoring

Common negligent patient monitoring actions include:

  • Failure to regularly verify and document vital signs
  • Not carefully monitoring IV lines
  • Inadequate oversight for fall-risk patients
  • Misreading test results and imaging screens

Close observation and quick response to changes in patients’ condition are essential for quality care.

Holding Negligent Hospitals Accountable

No amount of money makes up for preventable patient harm. But compensation eases financial devastation, paying for:

  • Past and future medical treatment
  • Rehabilitation and nursing care
  • Lost income and reduced earning capacity
  • Home or vehicle modifications

Settlements also account for patients’ pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life when substandard hospital care leads to injury.

What Damages are Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

Patients who are injured due to a healthcare provider’s negligence can pursue financial compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. There are several categories of damages that may be awarded.

Economic Damages

These compensate injured patients and families for quantifiable financial losses including:

Medical Expenses

Covers costs of hospitalization, surgeries, therapy, rehabilitation, at-home nursing care, medical equipment and prescription medications required to treat malpractice-related injuries. Both past expenses and projected future medical costs are included.

Lost Income

Reimburses injured patients for income they lost due to being hospitalized and going through recovery/rehab. Future loss of earnings if a patient can no longer work or must reduce hours is also calculable damage.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages account for the often devastating impacts medical errors have on patients’ wellbeing and lives:

Pain and Suffering

Seeks monetary compensation for both physical and mental pain caused by malpractice injuries. Common sources are surgery complications, disfigurement, disability or loss of limb function.

Loss of Companionship

If medical negligence leads to death, surviving family members may obtain damages for losing their loved one’s companionship. This addresses the emptiness from no longer sharing everyday life events and milestones.

Loss of Consortium

When severe malpractice injuries leave patients unable to fully interact with or provide emotional/physical support to spouses, the healthy spouse can claim consortium damages for impact on marital relations.

By pursuing the full spectrum of available compensation types through a medical malpractice lawsuit, injured patients can secure the necessary funds to pay ongoing medical bills and improve quality of living after experiencing negligence. Experienced lawyers ensure victims receive maximum recovery.
